Altrincham moved up to sixth in the National League table as they made it four straight wins with a 2-1 victory at home to Aldershot.
After a bright start from both sides, Alty took the lead in the 24th minute through Chris Conn-Clarke’s thumping shot into the bottom-left corner – his fourth goal in as many matches.
Aldershot’s response was immediate, but Ryan Glover’s effort came back off a post.
They were awarded a penalty with just under 20 minutes remaining and Cian Harries stepped up to equalise.
But the visitors’ joy was short-lived as Alty regained the lead five minutes later when Alex Newby found the bottom corner and that was how it stayed.
